Please note the change of date and venue, which has been made so that we can offer this as a residential retreat, enabling you to fully immerse yourself in a supportive environment, away from everyday concerns and distractions.
While attending the full, residential retreat is most beneficial and strongly recommended, a day rate is available for those who cannot do so. To see options and costs, click booking button.
